Great app to use when donating blood 5/5
By Johnny Karaoke
This app really helps with understanding the donation process and also with many other questions about the American Red Cross.
Ok. It lost rapid pass 2/5
I made the appt, did the rapid pass then went to give. I had the rapid pass open but they wanted my donor ID card so I left the pass to get donor card. It did not save the rapid pass. If you want this to be easy, then make sure it saves the rapid pass if you leave.
So informative 5/5
I love this app! You can schedule your appointment & see the journey your donation does through. Love the rapid pass, so there’s almost no waiting when you arrive for your appointment. If you’re a blood donor, this really makes you proud of yourself for helping save the lives of others.
True time saver 4/5
By Look up 1
Donating blood has little to do with rushed day and more to do with human good, but this app allowed me to get in and out much faster.
Application excellence 5/5
This app is very informative and functional. Bravo to the UX team. Greatly recommended instead of calling.
Great App!!! But... 3/5
I can’t find actual Red Cross LOCATIONS via this app and it drives me nuts!! I want to view locations AND drives near my zip code. Please!
Red Cross blood donor app 5/5
This is a good app. It works fine and I haven't experienced any problems with using it. This app lets you schedule appointments and keeps track of the journey of each donation and tells you where your blood donations have gone.
Saves times while saving lives 5/5
Convenient and accurate in detail. It’s a handy reference and beats carrying a physical card.
Such a good app!! I love that I can book appointments, track my blood & now with the Rapid Pass, it’s perfect!!
App crashes immediately after opening 1/5
Problems with Blood Donor App 1/5
Generally this app has been useful in tracking my blood donations but...
The process for making appointments, especially weeks and months in advance is particularly CUMBERSOME . It would be nice if a donor could just designate the date and time desired.
Yesterday, I rescheduled an appointment and all the appointments I had already made for the next six months were apparently deleted, except for on random one in May.
The new update to include the RapidPass on app makes this totally worth it. After completing the RapidPass, it shows up on the home page along with the donor card. This is going to make donating so much easier. ❤️☺️
Blood journey information is fabricated 1/5
Another fraud from the Red Cross.
It crashes... 1/5
I can't get this to open on my iPhone 7+. The app appears to open, and then just shuts down.
Yay! Rapid pass 4/5
By 5 pets too many
I love that I can now complete my rapid on something besides a desktop. However, I did rapid pass on my iPad this morning assuming I should access the QR code on my phone. But I couldn’t. I had to complete the questionnaire a second time on my phone so the pass would be on my phone. Small glitch but it would be helpful if the account updated across devices.
Decent app, but crashes regularly 3/5
I use this app regularly to check for upcoming drives and to review my donor information. However, the app crashes whenever I attempt to manage my scheduled donations—as soon as I tap on the location of my upcoming appointment, it pauses and then closes. If I need to change my donation time/location or cancel altogether, I need to do it on my computer. Please consider fixing this issue!
Love the data! 5/5
Just wish the stats (blood pressure, temp, hemoglobin) all synced up with Apple Health
Add BP and HR? 4/5
By Jake n Elwood
The addition of rapid pass is great. Love that I can view my history. Would like to see a place where I can record (or it’s automatically uploaded) my blood pressure and heart rate for each donation.
The best thing is that I can see the name of the person I donated the blood to, see my blood type and number of times I donated all from this app in a nice user interface
Easy and fast 5/5
By O- Superstar
I use the app for scheduling all my donations! It is simple and easy to use and it’s super fast! Now that you can also do rapid pass on the app, it is perfect!
Donor ID Not Loading 3/5
They need to have an option to fill out rapid pass on the app while I’m waiting.
No Rapid Pass !! 3/5
Has everything else. Nice way to keep all your info in one convenient place. Love it just needs rapid pass and then will be perfect.
No Rapid Pass available 2/5
No rapid pass available in the app. That wouldn’t be so much of a problem for me if my email notices didn’t tell me that I could do my rapid pass via this app.
Put these things in your app 3/5
We recently moved and we are not familiar with where the local Red Cross facilities are in our area. Within the app even though I had updated our new address I was getting emails from the Red Cross saying that I had an appointment in the town we moved from which is 200 miles away from my new address. Also it seems like there should be a feature you can click on to bring up donation places based on your new zip code.
Selfie doesn’t post correctly to Facebook. Just posts a link to Red Cross
Age problems need to be fixed. 1/5
By I took the time to do this
I donated blood at my school and I’m 16. I got approved, I donated blood! I just try to see my blood type and the app tells me that I’m too young to donate. When you exceed the minimum weight and iron count limit, you can donate. I definitely donated. Don’t you dare take that away from me. Red Cross needs to fix this or so help me God I’m going to break my finger just so I can go to a hospital to find out my blood type for emergencies. Shouldn’t be this hard when you’ve already donated.
This app was soooo easy and user friendly. I donate every 8 weeks and now scheduling and tracking my blood is easy!
Love it 5/5
Platelet Donation Review 4/5
By Gpa Gregg
I donate platelets to give back to my community. I also realize the importance of platelets necessary to give life to others less fortunate than me. In a perfect world, I will never need a platelet donation. If I do, I’ll feel happy that I’ve done my part in the past.
I love that I’m now able to fill out my Rapid Pass on both my iPhone and iPad. This app is pretty good, but I believe Rapid Pass should be available through the app rather than via an email.
My age??? 1/5
By Hunger games 55555
I donated blood and I’m 16, and I got a letter in the mail with my donor card, but the app says I’m too young to donate. ???? I’m pretty sure I’m not too young to donate since you know I was there and felt the needle go in to my arm and everything but whatever Red Cross you’re sure right I did not donate all of that blood was fake and a conspiracy
Love donating, hate the app 1/5
By Marco The Elder
After 15 minutes of downloading, installing, and configuring
the app just find a donation location, no such feature can be found. Waste of time!
Selfie function does not work 2/5
Taking and then trying to share a selfie through the app does not work.
All that gets posted on Facebook or Twitter is a link to the app, no photo with Red Cross border.
Ok, but needs rapid pass! 2/5
By T Nail
The app is useful but also useless without rapid pass ability within the app. Does not make sense to have a mobile app that doesn’t off the rapid pass!
Needs a lot of work 1/5
I really wish the Red Cross would improve this app. I’m continually disappointed at how buggy this app is. I donate as often as I’m allowed and this app has made doing that really difficult.
Review by Gerald Miller 3/5
App was marked down for not including the capability of completing the donor questionnaire ahead of the donation visit
For maximum utility, this Must be included Rapid pass saves people a lot of time
Be respectful of their time and include it, not just in a separate app
Meets Needs 4/5
The only need of the app is to be able to utilize it to give blood and track scheduling. It does exactly that! You can also use this instead of your physical donor card (which I’ve been lost). If you enjoy giving blood on a regular basis this is the perfect app. It’s updated effectively after a day or two from giving blood too!
App has some neat features but everything from my correct donor id to scheduling really needs work. Red Cross shouldn't push using the app to schedule appointments if the app doesn't fully work, can't even locate my local blood bank. Boooo!
I gave blood yesterday and in my state (Georgia) you’re allowed to give blood if you’re 16, with a parental consent. The app doesn’t let you sign up if you’re under 17.. FIX THIS ..!
Great app 4/5
The only thing that would make this a five star app would be adding rapid pass to it.
Needs Rapid Pass 3/5
It's a great app, but I'm not understanding why Rapid Pass can't be used within the app. Make that change and it would be a five star app!
If your new no worries 5/5
By give Plasma
The app is great. If your a new donor it work wonderful. If you like me I had a card years ago well it might take awhile to get it set up. Phone numbers are very important to the RedCross. So if your have donated in the pass make sure you give them that number or you could end with multiple ID card numbers. The app will not generate a donor ID number.
Love it 5/5
Love seeing the journey of where my donation is. Being able to see my donation history is also a great feature.
Could be so much better 2/5
Like the ease of making an appointment, but disappointed that it doesn't link you to the rapid thing to read materials and answer questions ahead of time. Also, why not give info about your vitals at last donation? And there's always a "problem" loading anything to do with rewards or details.
where is the rapid pass?? 3/5
this should be accessible
Doesn't update with my info 1/5
By Braunberger Family
Others are having the same issue. But after donating and getting the donor ID email, the app does not update with my info after several requests.
A nice app, but could use a little more. 4/5
First off, I LOVE to donate blood, and this is a great app to keep me motivated. It allows you to book appointments, see your donation history, and even earn badges to keep you motivated. The app is very useful. However, it could use more programming to turn a great app to an AMAZING app. First, we need to be able to complete the RapidPass via the app. Second, there needs to be more badges. Third, more connectivity to social media so we can share our pride for giving and hopefully inspire others. And fourth, more interactive tracking of the blood donations. I love knowing where my donation goes! Again, this is a GREAT app already, but wish it had a little more.
Where’s my info? 2/5
Downloaded the app after making a donation. A few weeks later I received an email with my donor History, donor id , blood type, etc. But the app has yet to update the info. I have submitted numerous account info updates. The page says it’s supposed to take 24-48 hours. This has been going on for weeks. I logged onto the Red Cross page and none of my info is there as well.
Love it!! 5/5
Very convenient. I haven't had a problem with it. I love that it includes all my stats and information. Great app!
Scheduling an appointment too difficult 2/5
I should be able to just select the location, time and date if I have that information.
